I was stunned when our jeep turned a corner in Chobe National Park and we saw all of these elephants.

    So cool. I love elephants and would love to see them in the wild one day!

  3. Elephants are my favorite! I can’t believe you got to see the babies as well. Incredible. They are such magnificent creatures up close.

    • TBM says:

      The babies are so adorable and it was great to see the adults interact and protect them.

      • I’m so jealous! That sounds amazing… there is an incredible planet earth episode that showcases the elephants – apparently they are the only animals that mourn the loss of their loved ones..

      • TBM says:

        The more I travel the more I’m amazed about this earth. It’s wonderful. And you can see how the elephants interact with each other how much they care about each other.

    What a rare opportunity to see a herd of elephants. Thinking of the enormity of each individual, that would be a sight to behold.

    Beautiful creatures.

  12. They look so much at peace…enjoying each other’s company.

  13. i can not imagine how your heart must have jumped. oh the joy of seeing those amazing animals.

  14. I love elephants. I watched a documentary on them last night and it is so sad what global warming is doing to their water supplies. Makes me mad! I hope I will get a chance to see them like this.

    • TBM says:

      I hope you do. I want everyone to be able to see them. I saw a brief clip of a documentary on glaciers this morning–yes I understand your anger. I really do. This planet is so amazing and I wish global warming and such didn’t impact it at all. So sad.

    This makes me smile. 60 years ago, you would have been shooting the elephants with a gun instead of a camera. I must get myself to Botswana.

  16. That would be absolutely amazing!!! You are SO lucky to have experienced that.
